Multi-purpose jetty at Haldia

The Kolkata Port Trust has invited bids for construction of a 270-m long riverine multipurpose jetty at the Haldia dock. The jetty, to be located in the upstream of the present third oil jetty of the dock and complete with back-up facilities, will be implemented through the public-private partnership (PPP) mode on the basis of design, build, finance, operate and transfer (DBFOT) basis. The cost of the project is estimated at Rs 290 crore.

The scope of the project pre-supposes that 70 per cent traffic of the 4.5 mtpa capacity jetty has to be generated through transloading operation proposed to be undertaken by the port in two stages – at the Sandheads, the mouth of the Hooghly river, during the dry season and at Kanika Sands, an island off the Orissa coast, during the monsoon months.
